If you're at a real NBA game there's very few people constantly standing and waving their hands/some sort of towel around for the entirety of the game. In reality there's a lot of older fans sitting and cheering. The place only gets crazy when there's a massive dunk, huge block, or big time shot. Don't get me wrong, I certainly think 2k17 is lacking but it''s not necessarily always a rowdy crowd. I think they would do good to add more of an in-arena announcer. Each stadium has one and he's usually starting the "DEFENSE" chants or telling fans to get on their feet. A more dynamic in-arena announcer and reactionary crowd would go a long way for immersion.

I remember it being in 2K10. I even remember some people complained about this specific thing.
The 2K12 video seems a little better but it still seems a little exaggerated for the opening minutes of a game that has nothing on the line.
I can't really compare these to 2K17 because honestly I've never listened to the crowd. Almost always I turn the sound off for 2K17 and just play youtube, podcasts,and music in the background.
One thing I can say is it would be nice see a fans jaw drop because of a crazy poster slam or something. But no big deal for me. I remember growing up playing NBA Live and just hating how ugly the crowd was, I'm just glad we are at the point were the crowd actually looks like people and not 2d cutouts.

Another thing I noticed playing the other night, I would listen to the crowd (at points where they were cheering), getting louder, and I would looking into the crowd and there was no movement, none at all. So we have cheering crowd sound effects, but no movement?
Just doesn't make sense.
